Jonas Olsson will start a two-match ban after he picked up his tenth yellow card of the season at Swansea last time out.
Morgan Amalfitano missed that game and won't be back in time to play here.
Pepe Mel would probably prefer to stick with the 5-3-2 formation he used last time out, but without Jones, Lugano, Olsson or Popov, he doesn't have the personnel available to do so, unless he hands youngster Liam O'Neill his full debut or plays Graham Dorrans out of position as a wing-back.
West Brom ended their terrible run of form under Pepe Mel with victory at Swansea last time out, and will be looking to build on that here.
A win would take them above today's opponents Hull, who are looking like they could be dragged into a relegation battle after successive defeats, though a win here would be a huge step towards safety.
Albion's comeback victory at the Liberty Stadium was wholly unexpected and are unlikely to win back-to-back games for only the second time this season given that they face a tough trip to Hull.
